Bagster used to support Habitat for Humanity

Win-win for both organizations

Ewing, N.J. – Waste Management’s Bagster bag provides a convenient disposal option for those taking
on home projects, but in New Jersey and Delaware, it’s now become the preferred way to dispose of
debris for Habitat for Humanity, an organization that builds homes for families in need. Through a
partnership created by WM’s Marketing Manager Nick Casparro, WM has donated Bagsters to serve
construction projects throughout the Area.

“We started the partnership where we provide the bags and they pay for the collection,” said Casparro.
“Since then, we’ve successfully grown the program through other locations. It’s been really good for
both organizations.”

Habitat for Humanity has two programs – A Brush for Kindness and Critical Home Repair – that
specifically target smaller renovation and cleanup jobs. Both benefit from the cost effective Bagster
service due to the smaller waste volumes generated at these projects where a traditional roll-off dumpster
isn’t needed. According to those overseeing construction, it’s a great asset.

“The Bagster is a great tool for smaller jobs like our Hurricane Sandy repair program,” said Joseph
Read, construction manager for the Northern Ocean County Habitat for Humanity.

”Bagsters are the best answer to our debris removal problems,” said Bob Piontkowski of Sussex County
Habitat for Humanity. “We carry them in our truck and have them on hand when they are needed.  They provide
a convenient, less expensive and more practical solution than getting a big dumpster.  Our partner families
like them as well since they blend into their property much better than a large dumpster.  They are also less
noisy during pick up by Waste Management.”
